I'll swap you for a set of lightweight 5 spoke Ducati Marchesini 996/998 wheels, they are my personal choice. A RaceComp rear spacer on the back wheel allows you to use Ducati set-up…………… 8) 8) 8) 8)

Hey Kuhlka, sorry only set-up for Ohlins. Easy for a man of your skills to make it fit............. It’s the rear adapter boss that’s tricky, Ducati wheels on a Triumph is a simple fix to a vast array of trick lightweight bolt on wheels.

Eh, if I get a bit more money and a new bike I'll go with a full Ohlins setup next time. The time/money equation is shifting in the money direction with a LOT less time.

your missing the very bestest part! The single sided swingarm.
I think most of us feel the same - the SSSA just looks so much sexier.
However important to recognize the reason that Triumph went the DSSA route was to save weight - substantially lighter than the single. Less unsprung weight transposes to better performance.

So would I swap my SSSA for dual for the performace gain?
Not a hope!!!! ;D

p.s. Glad to see you got the lights sorted out!

I am a bit of a slck arse,so the swing arm is staying.
I do love the look of the SSSA but I plan I taking this bike to a few track days,so will probably try one or two as is and then chuck the fairings and nose cone back and clip on bars (put it back to a Daytona) for a few and see how it compares.
Cheers :beer:
